The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines offers a big dose of hope toward ending the pandemic that has wreaked havoc on the nation. But for many underserved communities—some of the hardest hit by the pandemic—accessing those vaccines remains a challenge all its own.

In this CDC Foundation webinar, featuring Susan Watson, MPH, Director of PHI’s Together Toward Health, presenters discuss their work with community-based organizations (CBOs), as they collaborate on ways to navigate what can be a difficult path toward getting the community vaccinated. Presenters also share strategies to address the concerns and needs of communities, and to overcome the challenges of getting people vaccinated. This webinar is part of a CDC Foundation special series specifically tailored to CBOs and their partners.
